Three young Chile footballers were forced to go through an initiation as they set about trying to break into the national first team.
Instead of being asked to sing a song as an initiation, each player had chunks of their hair cut out by their teammates.
Cardiff City's Gary Medel posted a photo of the results on Twitter, with the message: "Welcome to La Roja little pigeons!!! ;)".
